escflashmalta.com in collaboration with Jagged House has been presenting a montly blog written by Ira Losco, a former representative of Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest and one of the most recognised female vocalists in the country. Around a year ago, following an extended period of time off, Ira Losco returned to the local music scene with the track What I'd Give which won her several accolades. Soon after, the launch of both the album entitled The Fire and the second single, bearing the name The Person I Am featuring guest vocals by David Leguesse. The third single off the album entitled Me Luv You Long Time is set to get an official video release in the next couple of weeks.

I can’t wait for you all to watch the Me Luv u Long Time video!!! The Bigger Picture have done an unbelievable job and the song is doing extremely well! It’s peaked at number 1 on the 89.7 Bay Radio Top 10 and is already at number 7 in the Top 30. Everyone I meet tells me how much they really like the track, that obviously makes me so happy. It’s such a satisfaction to write an album, which is really touching people in every way possible. Ira Losco listens to music from all over the world in whatever genre they might be, adding to the whole intrigue of her selection and as a matter of fact, let's see what her Top 5 Tracks for the month are!

Capital Cities - Safe and Sound (USA)

This track by American indie rock duo has already sold over a million copies in the US.  It’s got a fresh summer sound and I’m dead curious to listen to their album. I can’t find any reference to its date of release, but I’m sure if there’s more where this came from, it’ll be good. 

True Love - P!nk ft. Lily Allen (USA)

No one sings about Love like P!nk does. She really tells it as it is. The nitty gritty parts of the relationship, us women moan to our best friends about. And she does it so well. I love her tongue n cheek lyrics and her cheeky videos, which now features  her daughter alongside her husband Carey Hart, who was in another two videos prior to this one. It seems she hasn’t saved her acting talents for videos alone, P!nk is going to star alongside fellow actress Gwyneth Paltrow in the upcoming movie “Thanks for Sharing.”

Lose yourself To Dance - Daft Punk (France/USA)

Again Pharrell William’s sexy vocals and Nile Rodgers invaluable touch to the track Lose Yourself To Dance make it one of my favourites off Daft Punk’s album “Random Access Memories.”  I don’t believe it is one of the strongest singles so far, but it grooves and makes you want to hit the dance floor……an LED Dance floor that is! heheh

Alive - Empire of The Sun (Australia)

I have a soft spot for Oz musicians, to me they see the world from a different perspective. They have a style of their own. I can’t put my finger on it, but they sound more organic than most other European/UK bands do. That’s just my thought, but that’s what I feel when I listen to their music. Alive is the first single from their album Ice on Dune which Luke Steele (Empire of the Sun are a duo, the other being Nick Littlemore) compared to Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, but said they have better songs. Strong statement…haven’t heard their full album yet, but will do, just to see if he’s right or not ;-) 

Ellie Goulding - Burn (UK)

Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Ellie Goulding is one of my favourite Brit artists this year. Her timbre is  gorgeous, airy, yet strong, it’s a voice which soothes. This single really knocked everyone’s socks off. ‘Burn’ is the fourth single released off her album Halycon. And just to set the record straight, cause a few people are convinced she is… she’s not dating Calvin Harris…the kissing, caressing and fondling was just for the video to I Need Your Love released by Harris last April. Harris is actually dating Rita Ora. :-p

As always stay tuned to my Facebook Fanpage for status/picture/video/music updates and BRAND NEW VIDEO updates THIS weekend!!! For those of you who STILL haven’t purchased The Fire …you can do so by clicking here!! The band and I are getting geared up for our performance in Zabbar alongside Trbali. We will be hitting the stage first at around 9pm and Tribali will end the show. Entrance is FREE and I will be holding Meet & Greet sessions after the performance. Looking forward to meeting all of you!!!
